Wordplay Thursday #69

Wordplay Thursday

Welcome to Wordplay Thursday!

Here’s a writing prompt for you.  It’s a simple fill-in-the-blank. You can use one word or several. Feel free to get as crazy, genre-appropriate, or as imaginative as you want. The point is to get the creative juices flowing. And it’s a good thing to dig deeper, so don’t stop at the first idea that hits you. Try coming up with at least five things.

“His arms held her like _____.”

I’ll give you an example to get you started:

“His arms held her like a backyard hammock.”

I’d love to hear what you come up with, so please share in the comments. Oh, and please keep your posts below an R-rating. It’s a family show, after all!


Thanks to Jim King, Janet Goodman, Barney Coulter, Todd Storinge, Amy Nichols, Michael Klenda, Brian Robinson, Ken Matthiesen, Launnie Gin, Mae Young and everyone else for your great additions to Wordplay Thursday #68 (read it here)! Great job!

  1. His arms held her like: A new daddy holds a newborn. A boa constrictor at supper time. A socket over a nut. He’d never held a woman before. A bad memory. There was no bathroom near by. A rookie offensive lineman.

  2. “His arms held her like quicksand.”
    “His arms held her like the stars held the sky.”
    “His arms held her like glue”
    “His arms held her like a mousetrap”
    “His arms held her like a ski rope”
    “His arms held her like Jesus would”

  3. His arms held like spaghetti straps
    Barely there and quick to unwrap

    His arms held her like a big old bear
    There was never a doubt he was there

    His arms held her like lovers do
    Every moment is fresh and brand new

    His arms held he like a china doll
    He doesn’t want to let her fall

    His arms held her like a kitty cat
    There sure ain’t nothin’ wrong with that

  4. His arms held her like a jeweler holds a precious gym
    His arms held her like he never meant to let her go
    His arms held her like he needed to feel her heartbeat against his
    His arms held her like she was a prisoner of love
    His arms held her like it was the last time he would ever hold her

  5. His arms held her like a Tijuana tortilla.

    His arms held her like a terry cloth bath towel.

    His arms held her like a wool blanket on a cold night.

    His arms held her like a warm winter coat.

    His arms held her like a frightened child.

  7. His arms held her…..
    – like there was no tomorrow
    – like she was something to behold
    – like she wanted to be held
    – like she was leaving for good
    – like like a mother holds her first born…
